Put Your Foot In It
Organized by: David Mobley
EVENT DATE Apr 13, 2014
Help Patients Help Themselves
Empower individuals to understand and embrace foot massage as therapy. Facilitate understanding of Chinese medical therapy. Provide easy access to otherwise hidden authentic Chinese foot spas.
I am a general pediatrician with over 25 years of private practice experience (see planopeds.com). I also have a history of frequent, severe, and debilitating migraine headaches. After failing to get relief from western medicine (which I still practice), I turned to alternative therapy in the form of Traditional Chinese Medicine through acupuncture and eventually Chinese foot massage. In addition to tremendous progress in treating my migraine condition, I have discovered the many benefits from Chinese foot massage, also known as Reflexology and Zone Therapy. My mission is two-fold. First, I hope to increase awareness and accessibility among western-thinking Americans of the mechanics and benefits of this alternative therapy. Secondly, I wish to promote routine infant and child massage therapy in the form of Chinese foot massage, or Zone Therapy. The process must first begin with adults and later be extended to infants and children.
The Problem and Our Solution
In my journey, I have also discovered that Chinese foot spas do not advertise well on the internet. And there are many misconceptions about this amazing therapy with ancient traditions bringing relief and good health to millions worldwide. If you have never experienced it and would like to know more, then please explore our website (http://www.chinesefootmassage.net) . It is packed with detailed information explaining every aspect of the Chinese foot massage experience. It is a joint effort among myself, Dr. Ray Levy (child psychologist), and Dr. Alan Chen (doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine). We hope you will take advantage of the opportunity to benefit from this powerful therapy that is available to you for 12-14 hours a day, seven days a week (including holidays), at a cost of around $30 (plus tip) for 60 minutes of massage extending literally from your head to your toes. At chinesefootmassage.net you will find Spa Ratings and Reviews in the "Spa Locator & Reviews" section. Under "Education," there are nine topics relative to reflexology and precisely what you can expect from a foot spa. So go out now and get a massage! Relax and enjoy.
What exactly will your donation buy and what will you get?
I have spent many hours trying to share Chinese foot massage. I started a non-profit corporation, Zonessence, Inc. I have enlisted the help of a child psychologist and a doctor of Traditional Chinese Medicine. I wrote and built a website, and started a Facebook page (chinesefootmassage.net). But my outreach has been limited. I would like to purchase the chinesefootmassage.com website domain at a cost of $4800. I would like to hire a website developer to recreate a more efficient website that reaches more people who could benefit from therapy if they were better informed. I need $150 per month for this purpose. I would like to upgrade my toll free number to include caller ID so that I can make call-backs to interested parties. I would like to greatly expand the number of foot spas listed on my site to include all of Texas and later beyond. Much of this can be achieved with $8000 - $10,000, our initial goal. Any additional funds will be applied to furthering the effort.
I received a phone call this morning on my toll-free number from a gentleman who was looking for a foot spa. He was new to Taylor, Texas but had no idea where in the state that was. I immediately did some research and added 3 spas near him in the Austin area to my website and Facebook page, but I had mistakenly assumed that I could call him back using his phone number on my cell phone. Unfortunately my toll free service apparently does not have caller ID. I hope he revisited my website.
Please research my website and help me if you agree with my mission and are financially able to do so.
